I've been thinking about last year this week. Specifically from February to December, when Michael was job searching, and the period of July 2011 to this February when we were surviving on...not much at all....while waiting for his new job to start. I didn't type as much about it on this blog, but there were posts like this one and this one that referenced it.
I think one of the reasons last year's dearth of finances has been on my mind is because I've been fighting materialism this week. It's tempting to listen to the "because you're having a baby you need XYZ and another dose of LMNOP just in case" messages that society and our middle class/upper middle class friends tell us. Thankfully, since we're having another boy, we are fairly prepared for November Boy with the exception of some teeny clothes, burp cloths, and socks in sizes we never needed for Million...but the siren call of the baby aisles and eBay auctions is terribly alluring.
So in that light, I'd like you to pitch in and comment with one or more baby item that you never used or don't see the sense in buying.
